Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital
The fellowship in Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology at The Mount Sinai Hospital is designed to train qualified applicants in the diagnosis and therapeutic treatment options available to patients with advanced heart failure. We teach diagnosis and management of acute and chronic heart failure, patient selection for and management of mechanical circulatory support, and heart transplantation. We take pride in our robust inpatient volume with more than 1,000 hospital discharges for heart failure (3,000 system wide), more than 50 ventricular assist devices implanted, and more than 30 heart transplants performed annually at The Mount Sinai Hospital alone.
In addition to this rich clinical experience, the fellowship maintains a rigorous academic curriculum through journal clubs, didactics, research opportunities, and presentations at local and national meetings. Our heart failure faculty also hosts an annual CME symposium, Mount Sinai Advanced Heart Disease, which covers a broad range of topics including pulmonary hypertension, donor selection, and allocation and surgical considerations in advanced therapies.
We seek to train our fellows as integral members of our team who participate in the evaluation and complex decision making processes inherent to patients suffering from advanced heart failure. In so doing, we are confident that fellows graduate feeling fully capable to practice independently in all aspects of advanced heart failure and transplant cardiology.
